April 2017 Readathon: Wrap-up

So… I made it through the entire 24-hours without even a catnap.  I’m very happy with my progress.  I completed 3 3/4 books, and it would have been a complete 4 if I had not let the website being wonky distract me so much.  I love to participate in the hourly challenges and such and…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #22-24

I MADE IT!!! I made it through the whole 24-hours without so much as a power-nap.  Go me!  I also made it to the last 48 pages of Eighth Grade Bites.  I would finish, but if I don’t close my eyes and sleep for a bit I might go insane. After a few zzz’s I…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #19-21

In the home stretch now.  Only three hours to go and I’m, surprisingly, feeling good.  I think that I will not only finish Parnassus On Wheels, but start one more book.  This has truly been a great readathon for me.  I’m really surprised.  The litter interruptions from the kids (and the hubby called several times)…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #16-18

I’m starting to lose the vigor.  I’m getting a bit sleepy and I think it has more to do with that stinking storm keeping me up last night than normal exhaustion.  I’m only a quarter of the way into Parnassus On Wheels… Did I mention I finished how to Archer?  I’ve had more distractions in…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #13-15

It’s getting closer to the end and I feel like I’m going to make it without any issues.  Fingers crossed people!  I’m still working on How To Arher.  I’ve had a few more distractions, which I used as an excuse to get up and move around and/or get a snack/drink. My faithful puppy (who’s 9-years-old…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #10-12

Twelve hours?!  Holy moly the time has flown by!  I finally finished my zombie book and have moved on to the more comedic How to Archer.  [Review to follow the readathon].  I loved the zombie book, and the Archer book is giving me just the laugh I needed after all the scares and anxiousness I…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #7-9

Another trio of hours has passed and I’m literally pages away from finishing my first book.  I’ve had a few distractions, but none that I made me super frustrated or angry.  I really, really, really, wish I had read this book sooner, because I would had ordered the sequels already!  But that’s okay, I have plenty…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #4-6

Another three hours down and I’m still in it to win it…that sounded ridiculous.  I’m still on my first book, but as I said, I’m in for the enjoyment.  I’m very attached to the three main characters, one of which is a cute little doggie named Annabell.  I don’t think we’ve learned the main protagonist’s…

April 2017 Readathon: Hours #1-3

The first three hours are over and I have had a great experience so far.  I’m currently reading Day By Day Armageddon By J.L. Bourne and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner.  There was an iffy spot involving a dog where I thought I would have to put the book down–fiction or not,…

April 2017 Readathon: Hour #0

Today is Saturday, April 29, 2017 and I am about to being my third Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon!  Needless to say I am super excited.  This year I’m trying something a little different.  While I will keep up with the Dewey’s site, goodreads group, twitter and instagram, I will be cutting my blog updates down.  I…

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon Prep

It’s almost here!  In two days the readathon begins, and as I did the two prior times I participated, I’ve been preparing. First I took some ideas from my fellow readathoners on the Dewey’s Facebook Group and took an old journal that my hubby re-gifted to me and turned it into a proper reading journal.  And…

Read-a-Thon Time, Again

It’s that time again.  The biannual Dewy’s 24-Hour Readathon is almost upon us and I am looking for redemption.  Anyone who followed my progress during the October 2016 readathon knows that my family systematically sabotaged the readathon for me.  It was surprising, because when I participated for the very first time in April of 2016,…
